Young People’s Concert 2022

Welcome to the 2021-2022 season of the Wichita Falls Symphony Orchestra!

With funding from The Priddy Foundation, McCoy Foundation, Wichita Falls Alliance for Arts and Culture and Texas Commission on the Arts, we are pleased to present the 2022 Young People’s Concert & Curriculum Program.  This brand new concert will be hosted at Memorial Auditorium on Friday, January 21, 2022.  The concert and accompanying curriculum have been designed for fifth graders, as many are making decisions about choosing a fine arts elective for the next school year. Music educators and students in the North Texas region are invited to attend the concert and take advantage of the curriculum program.

UPDATE #1: In light of the current COVID situation with a significant rise in the number of cases and hospitalizations in Wichita County, we have been concerned about gathering more than 1500 young students and teachers from over 20 different school groups together, in addition to bringing musicians in from the Dallas area. After many discussions with local health officials, educators, Texas symphonies, the Musician’s union, and our staff, our Board has made the difficult decision to postpone the Young People’s Concert and the Fine Arts Discovery Day until 2023. We are deeply saddened by this decision, but believe that the health and safety of all parties involved is the most important consideration. Despite this setback, we are planning to come back in full swing next January 2023!

UPDATE #2: The WFSO will continue with the 2022 Paint to Music Contest! Scroll down to the section below to get links and details to participate.
